If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Barbara, l do prefer " mercerized cotton" over plain. 

Comment by Barbara Hughes on September 14, 2018 at 11:38am

Riana the plyester thread I was using was fraying and I also thought that would be the better choice, stronger etc... and for some reason the knotts were not tight enough to stay. I will try a good cotton and maybe look for a better poly. I did end up getting the Qnique 15R. It was at a terriffic buy. Nancy's said they were selling like hot cakes. I looked one over first and checked out some of the other at Nancy's. They had the Cornet I saw and also checked out on Youtube. Didn't like how it  bunched up fabric. I bought Angela Walters rulers and a few others from HQ. I've been watching a lot of yt vidoes on using a long arm and thanks for the tip about the long arm group and mounting, rollers and tensions. I'm doing my raffle quilt with a walking foot on my Unity,nearing the end.  Thanks so much.

Barbara, how exciting! Which one did you get? Please join the longarm group and read all the back much info on there on quilting with a moving machine on a frame ( bit of a learning curve on the mounting & roller tensions etc.) I don't care to use cotton much unless looking for special colour or texture...too linty, and at high speed, it breaks easier than polyester.

I purchased two spools of thread from Superior cotton thread. One 40weight and one 50 weight. Just to see what they would be like for quilting and piecing. Costly!! they better be good!!

Love the Bee's, Love the socks.

My midarm showed up at the door. Now to put the frame together. Still working on my raffle quilt. I wish I did it with all cotton thread. To late. I'm half way through the quilting. Better get busy, times going by fast.

I was working on a long time knitting project, ( sweater) last week on a road trip w/ grandson...we took him to a Yugio ( card game) tournament. I think that sweater is about half way now. You gals with the sox are way speedier than l, lol! Bought a set of 3 oval quilting rulers at a shop along the way & have been playing with them :)

Mary, great job.  You completed all 6.  I only did 4.  Need yarn fir the stranded socks, which I will look for, and I gave up on Stage 6.  Ripped them out 3 times and said  Again, great job.  Love the scrappy look.

Welcome Kathy to our crazy group .. and yes, it is just like an AA group  lol  I am Dee, I am a fabric-aholic and addictive obsessive quilter  hahahaha

Mary, love the socks !!  I am sitting here tonight working on a simple cowl to unwind a bit...

I have a finish girls ~ one log cabin for the twins is complete and bound .. and entered into fair AND Willow's top is done  .. yay !!  Took a sick day Monday to recoup / rest and finish my entries for fair, and get them entered and dropped off. Will have to add pix later .. 

Then I had a surprise .. my stepmother and her husband who were going to be arriving next week, came to AR to my house !  Seems the GB Packers were in town and she couldn't get in to see my brother in Green Bay as all the hotels were booked solid for 2 wks.  So I got to take another day off and we drove to Branson for lunch as my mom had never been there.  Quick tour, lunch and you would have been proud, I did NOT enter the fabric store  lol

Now I need to work on some QOV kits to prep for National Sew Day … that will happen closer to the weekend since I only have a 3 day work week  <hee hee>  

Linda ~ praying you are doing ok and getting closer to your new adventure !
